One of the selling points of Exadata is that you could host those hundreds of 
apps all on the same box as your data warehouse. Being written exclusively for 
SQL Server of course is a bit of a snag in that plan.

Curious question.  I have attended two Oracle events recently promoting 
Exadata.  These are high performance, expensive systems.  

At the same time we have purchased applications requiring small to mid-sized 
databases.  All are written for SQL Server only.  

We only have one data warehouse.  We have hundreds of other applications.  Is 
Oracle giving up on the small to mid-size database space?  They sure aren't 
talking about it in their marketing events and I am not seeing apps come in the 
door written to be either database agnostic or written for Oracle.
